My laptop was increasingly poorly, finally submitting to the effects of the pint of cider I spilled over it [4 years ago] having owned it for only a month. After being given a nice chunk of change for my birthday, I took the opportunity to retire my laptop and purchase a spiffy new netbook, so I can take teh interwebs with me when we go travelling around the country. However, it didn't have a case or sleeve, so instead of paying more money than I wanted to part with for something boring and mundane, I made myself one that reflected 'me' a little bit more.
Batting from my stash and two fat quarters from Walmart at the extortionate cost of 99cents each resulted in this...

I inadvertently made it a bit too big; it turns out that I'm a lot neater than I realised and I didn't need nearly as much seam allowance as I'd given myself. Never mind eh, better than making it too small...

It probably looks a lot nicer than a case you can find in a store! I'd like to make a case for my own laptop, but I'd need more than two fat quarters to cover that ancient thing haha.

Nicely done!
